When you create a custom object in salesforce. You have check for a check box in Optional Features -->Allow Reports. So please try doing that.

My flag is showing checked but my object is still not showing..Any suggestions? – user24034 Aug 18 '15 at 21:16
  • Go Back to your object Setup > Create > Your_Object
  • Click on Edit
  • At the bottom under Optional Features, check Allow Reports and Save it

Also a kind of possible problem is after creating the report type, some fields are missing in the report builder. This is because of custom fields have not been added to the report type.
To resolve this,

  • Go to Setup > Create > Report Types.
  • Click on your Custom Report Type.
  • At the bottom under Fields Available for Reports click Edit Layout.
  • Then drag and drop the fields you want to display on report from right hand side panel and save it.
